Bobs Worth leads field of 27 for Lexus Chase at Leopardstown
Hennessy Gold Cup winner will be joined by a number of racing’s big names.

FRESH FROM HIS victory in last week’s Hennessy Gold Cup, Bobs Worth is one of 27 entries for the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown on December 28.

His trainer, Nicky Henderson, had mentioned the Grade One event as an option for the seven-year-old, and he is listed by Leopardstown on their card for the €150,000 race.

However, depending on conditions, he could decide to keep his latest star at home in preparation for a Cheltenham appearance in March.

If he does race, he will come face to face with both Tidal Bay and First Lieutenant whom he beat into second and third respectively in the Hennessy.

Other entries include the Jewson winner Sir Des Champs and last season’s Gold Cup runner-up The Giant Bolster.

Among the Irish entries are Weapons Amnesty and China Rock, while Sizing Europe is listed in the race as an alternative to the King George VI Chase in Kempton on December 26.
